Mistaken

the memories are slowly fading

a momentary respite from reality

i am back to where I started

a permanent relapse into insanity

I have been judged and found wanting

left alone to wander

in my solitude I reflect

past, present and future to ponder

the silence has deafened me

dead to the world you know

must’ve chosen differently

consequences I now sow

what love suddenly abandons?

set aside and buried

a forgotten space in your graveyard

a sight both sad and lurid

this is not a frivolity

I thought I was known better

this soul has self-destructed

agonizing, broken and bitter
